Making wastes profitable can be a handy option for any business. Hence more and more people use the straw pellet machine these days. If you are on this page, you are likely to look for a straw pellet machine. Therefore, as a leading straw pellet machine manufacturer, we created this beginner's guide so you can find the best machine for you. Straw is a basic raw material for paper, ethanol, and animal feeding. But these days, people working in the agriculture industry found the advantage of recycled straw. You can generate handsome revenue from recycling straw.

Therefore, the straw pellet is becoming more and more popular, and so is the straw pellet machine. If you are in the agriculture industry or planning a start-up, read our beginner’s guide on the straw pellet machine before buying one.

What are Straw Pellet machines?

A straw pellet machine can convert different straws into biomass pellets. You can use any biomass crop straw as a raw material in a straw pellet machine. Most people use straw pellet machines to create straw pellets from rice straw, wheat straw, sawdust, and so on.

Some people say it a Wheat straw pellet machine and others say it as a Paddy straw pellet machine.

Though a straw pellet machine is used to make straw pellets from various corpses, you can also use them for other purposes. You can use a straw pellet machine for making animal feed and wood pellets for multiple purposes.

What are the Uses of a Straw Pellet Mill?

Straw pellet machines are used to create straw pellets from different straws such as rice, wheat straw. In the past, people used to make straw pellets manually, which was a long and tiresome process. But a straw pellet machine can create straw pellets automatically from raw materials.

Straw pellets are used for various purposes these days. For example, they are a useful fuel material with high calorific value, low ash, and moisture content.

What is the Working Process of a Straw Pellet Machine?

The first step is to feed the raw materials, which in this case is straw, through the hopper. But you can not feed raw straw into the straw feed pellet machine. Before you start making pellets from a straw, you should follow some previous steps as you can not make pellets from direct raw straws.

You have to follow three steps to process straw for processing. First, you have to grind the straw and then dry it to remove moisture. Then you have to use conditioning to achieve the necessary temperature before you proceed.

After feeding straws into the machine, they spread over the flat die. After starting the motor, it brings the main shaft through the gearbox.

Strong pressure is formed from the rotating press, which presses the straws into the holes on the flat die. There the processed straws are molded and get the cylindrical shape while squeezed out.

While the biomass pellet comes out of the slicer under the flat die, cut them to proper pieces.

This is the working process of a flat die straw pellet machine. Though the ring dies straw pellet press machine is used for large production, the basic process is more or less the same.

How Much Does a Straw Pellet Making Machine Cost?

We frequently hear these questions. But there is no one-line answer to this question as the price of straw pellet machines depends on various factors. We will talk about that, but before that, we would like to introduce the factors that affect the straw pellet press machine cost.

  • There are two types of straw pellet press machines: large production (ring die) and small production (flat die). Both machines come with different features, and the price range is very much diverse.
  • Which power you will use for your straw pellet machine also affects the price. For example, we have a straw pellet machine that can run on electricity or fuel. The power source plays a crucial role in the price of the straw pellet press machine.
  • The manufacturing process is also very important. Low-quality wheat straw pellet machines or paddy straw pellet machines will cost less, but they are not durable, less efficient, and do not sustain many years.

Now let’s discuss the price. For in-house use, you can buy a straw pellet press machine for USD 500 or less. But if you are looking for a standard straw pellet press machine, the price ranges from USD 2,000 to 4,000. For industrial-grade production, the price will be between USD 4000 – USD 60,000.

TCPEL provides all types of straw pellet machines for sale. Share your budget and project requirements and we will provide you with the best suggestions.

How many Types of Straw Pellet Mills are There?

Straw pellet machines are of two types – Large scale machines and small-scale machines.

As the name suggests, large scale is for industrial-grade production, and small scale straw pellet press machines are used for small production.

We can classify a straw pellet machine according to the production capacity – The flat die and ring die straw pellet machine. Flat die straw pellet press machines are used for small-scale production. And for large-scale straw pellet production, you will need a ring die straw pellet machine.

In TCPEL, we have both ring die and flat die straw pellet machines for sale. Every machine is well tested, and we offer 24/7 support for our clients.

How to Choose a Productive Straw Pellet Machine?

The Fastness

The strength of the straw pellet machine is very important. The machine should be stable and efficient. Suppose you have bought a cheap straw pellet press machine. A cheap straw pellet machine will lose its efficiency faster and never sustain for a long time.

Besides, you have to invest a considerable amount in maintaining the straw press machine. So, stability is the foremost factor you should consider before buying a straw pellet machine.

Budget

Your project and budget will tell which one is the best straw pellet machine for you.

Fuel consumption and Production Capability

While choosing the best straw pellet machine, these are the most vital factors you should look after. Production capability is crucial because that will determine if the machine is ideal for you. Then comes the fuel consumption. More fuel will add extra cost to your production, which will reduce your profit margin a great deal.

Operational costs

It doesn’t matter which business you are in; a high production cost will affect your income. The straw pellet machine you buy should have an easy to use interface and require a less operational cost. Compare some machines and you will get a real-world idea about the operational costs.

Cost of Maintenance

From our experience, many customers don’t care about the maintenance costs while buying a straw pellet machine. But we should warn you. Maintenance cost is very crucial. Some machines have a bad reputation for the higher maintenance cost, which affects efficiency, and you lose a significant amount of money each month.

For example, standard straw pellet machines need butter every two days. But the TCPEL straw pellet machine needs butter every five days. This is one example. There are many other maintenance costs you need to take into account.
